Amazingly, none of them involved 'Socialism, Comrade!' Except for the beatings and deaths and disease and....
Speaking of socialism,
* According to Gallup,
Venezuela is now the least safe place in the world, having tumbled
below Afghanistan in the rankings. Only 17% of Venezuelans say they feel
safe walking alone at night.
* Polio has re-emerged
in Venezuela, 30 years after it was declared extinct there. The
country’s health care system is verging on non-existent, as hospitals
not only have run out of medicines, in some instances they don’t even
have running water.
* Venezuela is said to have more proven oil reserves than any other
country, but its socialist government can’t keep the petroleum flowing,
as pretty much everyone who is competent enough to do so has left the
country. As a result, Venezuela’s oil exports are heading toward zero.
But I'm sure someone will be along to assure us that this isn't REAL socialism.
